Another year has passed and many many positive things have happened, many people have invented useful tools, others have volunteered to help the homeless, the poor children, they have built houses and others have had great results at many competitions. Our website has tried to present to the world many of the positive things Romanians did this year and still, we have not managed to present all the good news but only a small part that has become known in the media.
